To The Daily Sun,
After reading Paula Trombi's letter in Wednesday's Sun, I proceeded to take her advice and I e-mailed Sen. Forrester and I did feel better afterward. I advised the senator to stand her ground against the expansion of Medicaid as it will cause New Hampshire serious financial difficulties down the road.
Ms. Trombi states in capital letters that it is "ABSOLUTELY FREE". Her naivete is quite astounding. I'm sure she still believes her illustrious president's statement that "if you like your health plan you can keep your health plan." I hate to burst your bubble, Ms. Trombi but there is no such thing as "free money." It all comes out of our pocket one way or another. Have you noticed that the 100 percent funding of this program ends along with Obama's term in office? I wonder if the timing of that and the timing of the Unaffordable Care Act's onset after the 2012 election have anything in common. You bet your sweet bippie they do!
If you want a healthier society tell your Ppesident to put his ego and ideologies on hold and get to work making sure that everybody that wants to work has that opportunity and those that don't want to work aren't taking the funds that should be reserved for those in need, such as the elderly and handicapped. We could improve those lives dramatically if the leeches of society weren't sucking the blood out of our assistance programs. That's the kind of society I want to live in. I guess if that happened the new Democratic Party would lose most of their constituents along with their votes.
